The Great Escape

Grounded in a near-century-old legacy, this is a whole new escape from the commonplace. (Re)built by the Idaho Aviation Foundation to be a beautiful, nonprofit public resource in the great outdoors, Big Creek Lodge opens up an off-the-grid backcountry experience unlike anything else out there. Make your getaway.

 

Wildest dreams.

An ideal wilderness hideaway—beautifully constructed with wood floors, large wrap-around windows, and eight bunk beds—the Kif Brown Yurt at Big Creek opens up a more independent approach to outdoor adventures here.

Paradise, found.

Big Creek Lodge recently rose again in the breathtaking backcountry of Idaho after a devastating fire. Both old school and all new, it combines the charm of a classic mountain retreat with the appeal of modern amenities.

The Area

Big Creek lies on the lip of a vast 2.4 million acres of untamed land called the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness. By and large, it's pretty epic out here.

The Menu

It's not only a feast for the eyes up here. It's actually quite a feast. Focused on healthy, filling cuisine to fit backcountry tastes, our menu changes often depending on what's in season and inspiring us.

The History

The original Big Creek Hotel attracted generations to this outdoor wonderland. Until a fire burned this piece of Idaho history to the ground. Many thought this unforgettable destination was lost to the past. Until we gave it a new future.

Hello, my name is Ray and I'll be joining the Big Creek team this year. I have lived in Alaska for the last 5 years. During my time here I've been an ATV tour guide, Reindeer wrangler, Northern lights host, and currently am managing a small kitchen at a Ski resort. I have a big passion for photography and am excited for the opportunity to catch some shots of life at Big Creek.

If you visited Big Creek last year, then we already have something in common...Enjoying my mother's delicious cooking! I will be helping her out in the kitchen, as well as hosting/serving/inn keeping. I look forward to being apart of everyone's Big Creek experience! It will be a wonderful summer.
